If my motivation for being here was to be picky and/or pedantic as regards the linguistic infelicities infesting the forum I'd have gone into meltdown a long time back.

I prefer to break it down into simpler phrasing that even one as refined such as yourself can appreciate.

Blow me, Horatio.

There, a little Shakespeare, a little obscene directive. Something for everyone. I'm all about the audience.

Oh, yeah, congratulations on a fine hijack.

Grateful who?

Wait a mo' ...

You hi-jacked your own thread by going off at a tangent about internal organs and alliteration of said organs, if I remember rightly.

Not that I'm complaining you understand.

Horatio? I thought the general consensus was that copyright in that term belonged to ducats (with fair use exceptions).

Fuck off skies! ((C)- Bluedevil - all rights reserved).)

I'm afraid the term first came to light by way of our own recently-scarce Wolf:

"please learn to spell and not type in all caps - and don't doubt rasta's dedication to the dead. he has been postin good comments long before you. and if you feel you are "all that" = blow me." - direwolf0701 2/09/2006

Personally, I jumped on the Blow Me train later that year in December:

"Down right irritating to boot"? Well, in the new spirit of compassionate discourse, I will only say "blow me". Now, that is not an attack, it's more of a suggestion of disgust and irritation. Aint that right, Dire?" - SDH20 12/01/2006

You can't say Blow Me without a nod, or bob of the head, to Dire.

Well, if it "belongs" to dire, than we should all rip it off.

If he was here, he knows that I'd call him an asshole.

Um, I'd prefer you not rip off anything that belongs to Dire. What little he has I assume he needs.


Oh, wait, I see....

Nevermind.

It's that bob of the head that makes for a good blow me.

Are you confusing the Hamlet Horatio with the Hornblower Horatio?

Fuck off, Hughes. There was nothing 'casual' about it. That was a finely crafted piece of work.

And then ruin it all with a finely crafted "feck off"
